Amata Art Award

Rapee writes: Had I not used Thanon Ratchadamnoen Nok regularly, I would never have known that there were these interesting pieces of art being displayed on the footpaths along Thanon Ratchadamnoen as part of the First Amata Art Award Exhibition. The exhibition, organized by Amata Foundation and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration , runs from March 13 through April 9, 2005.

Besides not getting enough mention by the media, when I have tried to find a website of the exhibition on the internet, nothing turned up. So I thought, it would be nice to let others know about the exhibition and make them want to come and enjoy it themselves.

Hopefully, this will not the first and only art exhibition on Thanon Ratchadamnoen.

Update: ttaaee writes on the forum: Unfortunately, the exhibition has ended 3 days sooner than it was scheduled. As I passed by the exhibition on Thanon Ratchadamnoen Nok around 9 pm last night (April 5), these arts were packed and removed from the curbsides. I guess BMA needs the space for Songkran decorations as this morning I saw "Naga (king of snakes)" fountains were being installed around the Democracy Monument and also on the sidewalks of Ratchadamnoen Nok.
